Zaffre, the flagship commercial fiction imprint of Bonnier Books UK’s Zaffre Publishing Group, has announced that actor Richard Armitage will return to narrate the audiobook version of T.M. Logan’s latest up-all-night thriller, The Dream Home.
Richard Armitage is a multi-award-winning stage and screen actor best known for his on-screen roles as Thorin in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy and more recently as Daniel Miller in Epix’s Berlin Station and Claude Becker in Ocean’s 8. He can be seen starring in the Netflix series Stay Close, an adaptation of Harlan Coben’s best-selling novel.
A compelling stage presence. Armitage was nominated for an Olivier Award for his portrayal of John Proctor in Yael Farber’s staging of The Crucible by Arthur Miller at the Old Vic. He also played Astrov in Ian Rickson’s critically acclaimed 2020 production of Uncle Vanyaalongside Toby Jones, and his leading role in the off-Broadway play, LOVE LOVE LOVE directed by Michael Mayer also garnered critical acclaim. This is his second audiobook collaboration with T.M. Logan, having previously narrated The Curfew.
On recording the audiobook, Richard Armitage said: “Tim is so skilled at what he does – I am a big fan of his writing. And I can guarantee The Dream Home showcases every bit of what makes him such a successful author.”
T.M. Logan said: “I’m over the moon to have Richard confirmed to narrate The Dream Home. He did such a fantastic job on The Curfew and I enjoyed working with him over the last year on events for both of our books, so to have the support of such a hugely talented actor and author is a dream come true.”
Laura Makela, head of audio at Bonnier Books UK, added: ‘T.M. Logan and Richard make the perfect pairing, as evidenced by the audio edition of The Curfew, and I’m thrilled we’re able to bring these great talents together again for The Dream Home. Richard’s skillfully calibrated performance perfectly heightens the taut unfolding of yet another brilliantly crafted thriller from T.M. Logan.’
The Dream Home is the latest ‘up-all-night’ thriller from the million-copy Sunday Times bestselling author T.M. Logan. Logan’s well-known title The Holiday was a Richard and Judy pick, remained in the Sunday Times top 10 for ten weeks, and has been adapted into a Channel 5 television series which hit the top 5 shows on Netflex last year. This was followed by the adaptation of The Catch, which also hit Netflix’s top 5.
The Dream Home will be published in the UK and Ireland on 29th February 2024 in hardback, audio, and eBook.
